Thanks. It's going to be a busy week of reading. I might have to send some books back unread.

Whoopi Goldberg's book looks fun, I will add that to my list. Have a nice week.

Whoopi Goldberg's book is a fun, quick read with lots of pratical advice.

Thanks. I hope I get a chance. I'm rapidly running out of time for some of these library books.

I always like the variety of books you read.

Thank you.

Aj @ Read All The Things!

Thornhill is on my TBR list. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it. Have a great week!

I just finished Thornhill. It's really good. You can read it in an afternoon or two.

My library hold always come in at the same time so my stacks at home have to wait patiently. The Bookshop At Water's End is one of those that gets to go to the front of the line since it is a library book.



Comment #12: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 21:30:00

Pussreboots

The Bookshop at Water's End is also a library book for me and due on Sunday. I'm racing to read as many of these books as I can.

I've been wanting to read The Bookshop at Water's End. That looks really good. I hope you enjoy it and have a great week!



Comment #14: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 21:33:00

Pussreboots

The little bit I've read so far has been good. I just hope I finish it before it's due. If not, I'll have to re-request it.

I enjoyed The Bookshop at Water's End. Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

I'm hoping I can finish it by this Sunday, when it's due.

Shaye @ Miller Memo

I will be especially interested in your review of Tess of the Road. It's on my list, but will take me a few more weeks to get to it. Oh how I wish I had more hours in the day to READ! :) I also have Thornhill on my TBR list. I'm excited about that one, too!



Comment #18: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 21:35:00

Pussreboots

Argh. I still haven't started it and I'm hoping to review it a week from today. Thornhill is very good.

The Case for Jamie and Tess of the Road! Hope you are enjoying/enjoyed them! Thanks for stopping by! happy reading!



Comment #20: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 21:39:00

Pussreboots

The Case for Jamie was good. I reviewed it last week. You can read it here. Tess of the Road I still haven't started but need to soon.

I've heard good things about American Panda. And The Wild Robot Escapes looks fun- I haven't seen that one!



Comment #22: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 21:42:00

Pussreboots

American Panda isn't as fluffy as the cover would suggest — though it does show her love of hot chocolate. I hope you read it. If you read The Wild Robot Escapes, please first read The Wild Robot so you can really get to know Roz.

Thanks for sharing all the books you are reading. I get lots of my best suggestions from my blogger friends.

Pussreboots

As do I. I add probably a dozen new books each week that way.
